in government for 23 years, i've been at those departments like dpw and others where we think in one dimension. this is where we clean the streets. this is how often we clean it. this is when we tell the cars to move off. and this is what dpw does and it does it pretty well within that constraint. if you shared that data with companies who are looking at where do people live, how -- what their patterns are, we can get a lot more creative. when we open our data, when we suggest to departments that they can work in collaboration, when we open up and establish within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have
years, i've been at those departments like dpw and others where we think in one dimension. this is where we clean the streets. this is how often we clean it. this is when we tell the cars to move off. and this is what dpw does and it does it pretty well within that constraint. if you shared that data with companies who are looking at where do people live, how -- what their patterns are, we can get a lot more creative. when we open our data, when we suggest to departments that they can work in collaboration, when we open up and establish within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a su

to schools. i know that there are two on the list. i'm wondering does dph and dpw and even the school district look at the city-wide needs and prioritize it or does it just come up -- well, why would ert [speaker not understood] be on the list and not -- betsy car michael and schools in the bayview, for example? but i'm just wondering. >> right. there are actually three safe routes to school applications, et cetera, on this list. they do stem from a combination of identification efforts. one is a city-wide identification of project needs and there are also walking audits that are performed by the department of public health and also the safe routes to school members to identify specific projects to be implemented in the near future. >> and the two that i see on the list look like they're build outs and it looks like they cost [speaker not understood] for a build out. that sounds like a lot of money for a build out. i'm wondering if you could talk a little about that. >> as far as the project scope, it is a collection of different scope elements. so, it's not to say that the $500,000 c

to not have the port own the land any more. the city ons the right-of-way. dpw gets to own the street right-of-way, but the port owns underneath. we're in the process of appraising the value of the land as open space whereas publicly owned land with the open space designation which basically means you can't build on it, a building, and getting the [speaker not understood]. and then we have a different strategies we're trying to figure out how to negotiate with the port about how to convey that money to them. but they've already shown their willingness to go through the process, do the appraisal, to take the money over time to talk about different means to receive the money. that is a separate conversation. >> there is no availability -- i know we just passed the park bond or park recreation bond. i don't know if any of the funds there were not earmarked in a way they could be used for this project. do we know? >> i'm not sure actually. i feel like we're turning over many different financing stones and even laying the [speaker not understood] to take the lead on that. and everyone kind of fe
, what agency, and you have all kinds of agencies. airport, sfmta, dpw, dbi, rec and park. it could be anything like a plumbing permit. and no one would know when the first approval is. so, the whole thing is very vague. and then you get this thing about someone says, oh, supervisor wiener says, this is improved noticing. well, in some of these instances in the legislation, if you read it very carefully as on page 2, lines 1, 12, i wasn't going to net pick in the weeds, but i have to noticing could be optional or none. * 11 because depending on the circumstances, some notices are not required and in some instances they are, so, you don't know if as it's optional or required. so this is going to turnout to be very vague. then you have this thing where you have these hearings. well, a hearing could be scheduled as on page 14 lines 7 through 8f, but it doesn't have to be held. it says it just has to be scheduled. so, the clerk can schedule a hearing, but then the next criteria is, well, how long after? well, there's no minimum so you don't even have a 14-day minimum to wait and then t
to remove a tree and put in two knew trees and then to do my edition. * new trees first i'd go to dpw, go get my tree permit that nobody is paying attention. that action happened. then it comes to the planning commission. is it now that they could not file a c-e-q-a appeal because they didn't file it on the tree permit? >> again, assuming the tree permit is a discretionary action, we did a cad ex for it, the cad ex would only apply to the action if that's the only action that we had in place -- [multiple voices] >> if the information that we acted on was incomplete and there was a change to the project or further development of the project that changed those conditions, go back to go here. essentially the c-e-q-a clearance is on what we know and what we address. if we didn't address an aspect of the project because it wasn't put before us, then that becomes a new discretionary action subject to new environmental review subject to new appeals. i guess, i would imagine people would give the whole project -- i do think we're shortening the window. i guess the question is, then, what is the p
